Have you ever felt hungry for a more intimate human connection? In today’s episode, we hear what our guest did to feed that hunger and learn about the international project that sprung from it. Hannah Brencher is a writer, TED Speaker, and online educator with a heart for building leaders. During our conversation, she shared about her career, her mission, and her creative process.
Her second book “Come Matter Here” arrived in bookstores in May 2018. Her first book “If You Find This Letter” tells the story behind the social movement, More Love Letters. Since 2011, More Love Letters has spread to over 70 countries, all 50 states, and over 100 college campuses. Named as one of the White House’s “Women Working to Do Good,” Hannah and her work have been featured in publications such as CNN World News, the Wall Street Journal, Oprah.com, and Glamour among dozens of others. Hannah lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband Lane.
